Start your full-day tour of the Central North Island with visits to three of the top Rotorua visitor attractions. At Te Puia, you'll learn about Maori traditions and ways of life, before entering the Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley, home to shooting geysers and bubbling mud pools.

Next, visit the Agrodome to find out all about farming in New Zealand by watching a sheep-shearing display and sheep dogs showing off their skills! Then visit Rainbow Springs Nature Park to see the famous New Zealand kiwi, as well as a huge range of other native New Zealand wildlife and plants.

After visiting the top Rotorua sights, set out across the countryside to a very special New Zealand destination - the Hobbiton Movie Set, constructed on a beautiful 1,250 acre farm near Matamata. Take a guided tour of Hobbiton and learn how this working farm was transformed into The Shire from Middle-earth for the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. Your guide will show you locations like Hobbit holes, the Green Dragon Inn and the Mill - and maybe even let you in on some secrets from filming! After your Hobbiton Movie Set tour, return to Rotorua.
